When times are tough, and you feel like your world is falling apart, it is human to have a tendency to fall into a hopeless state. One of the wonderful gifts of practicing Naturopathic Medicine is having the opportunity to witness even the most seemingly hopeless situation with a person’s health turn around completely, when all other doctors and experts had given up. We see patients who were asked to leave the hospital and head to hospice because there was nothing more to do, then, within two weeks of treatment turn around completely and head back towards the direction of health and well being moving beyond dis-ease in the body and a sense of hopelessness.
I encourage you to research Naturopathic Medicine, and the gifts it offers, in terms of providing genuine, scientifically sound tools that transform health and well-being, even in some of the most “hopeless” situations.
If you are unsure where to start, a good foundational approach is to go through a 21 day purification program that aids in the removal of toxins and “cleans the slate.” Then you can get the proper lab testing and assessment you need, only from a clearer more receptive place. In practice I find that this approach, more often then not, leads to longer term, more specific results, and happier, healthier, more inspired patients! One of my favorite experiences at LTP Natural Medical Center is watching patients walk through our doors at the end of their 21 day purification program. They are revitalized, their energy is cleaner, and they are inevitably smiling. When you see that on a regular basis, there is no question that the body has the ability to heal itself, and that it is never too late to start again, with a renewed sense of self and joy.
